Simmons College's 113th Commencement Ceremonies will be held on May 18, 2018 at the Blue Hills Bank Pavilion.  

The Undergraduate Ceremony will be held in the morning (BA, BS, BSBA, BSN, and BSW students.) Tickets are NOT necessary for guests attending the morning, undergraduate Commencement.

Graduate students, please note: the College will grant a record number of Masters and Doctoral degrees the afternoon of May 18. The Pavilion has a limit of 5,000 occupants. In order to stay within that limit, we will issue tickets to graduate students, based on the number of guests you anticipate (up to 4.)  We will send email invitations to Commencement in March with detailed information – be sure to reply!  Please only request as many tickets as you will need (up to 4) so that we can ensure that all graduates are able to bring guests.  We will live stream the graduate ceremony to overflow space at the Seaport Boston Hotel and World Trade Center adjacent to the Pavilion – and on the internet.  (Tickets will not be necessary at the Seaport Boston Hotel.)
